Del Toro Develops “Fantastic Voyage” Remake

With the “Pacific Rim” sequel shelved and “Crimson Peak” press commitments all done, Guillermo del Toro is looking for his next project and he may have found it.

The “Pan’s Labyrinth” and “Hellboy” writer/director is in talks to develop and direct a remake of the 1966 sci-fi classic “Fantastic Voyage” which is being made by Twentieth Century Fox and James Cameron’s Lightstorm Entertainment.

The story revolves around a team of scientists who are shrunk to atomic size and sent in a miniature submarine inside the body of a scientist to save his life.

It’s a reunion of sorts for del Toro. The new ‘Voyage’ has also been written by David Goyer who previously worked with del Toro on “Blade 2” and will continue development of this film with the helmer.

James Cameron meanwhile once tried to help del Toro launch his passion project, a film adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s “At the Mountains of Madness”. Cameron, Jon Landau, and Rae Sanchini are producing this project.
